So we all tend to have one Pokemon we seem to overuse in our teams or try to make them fit into as many of our teams as we can (this can apply to as many tiers as you want) - what's that Pokemon for you and why? n_n

It's not so much a Pokemon, but always a type of Pokemon - Fighting. This is because usually, Fighting-type Pokemon can put the hurt on pretty much anything due to excellent coverage and stats.

In all generations I tend to put my starters in most battles.

Tyranitar's definitely one of them nowadays as that's been on most if not all of my in-game teams starting from Diamond back in 2008 for me.

1) Lucario
It's my all time favorite Pokémon and I love making new movesets for him.
So in every game that has Lucario I have him in my team
2) Espeon
I love this sweeper and since Espie was made even before Lucario, Espeon can even be in more teams than Lucario
3) Umbreon
Similar to Espeon, I love stalling strategies =D

I tend to overuse Torterra. Sometimes I'll also use Gardevoir in most of my battles.

My whole entire team is overused. Really don't use them any more or less than the other. Really just a matter of who I send out I rarely switch unless I'm at a great disadvantage.

I tend to not use the same Pokémon more than once between games.

But I do use Rock- and Ground types a lot recently. I just love them. As a result my teams are usually quite slow and special-fragile nowadays :P

I can't help using my oldest pokemon from my first pokemon game I owned, Leafgreen.

1) Venasaur is absolutly my favorite pokemon ever and can't help bringing him everywhere I go.

2) Dragonite. I can't believe I managed to train him ever since he was a Dratini back then when I was a noob. He isn't even fully trained yet and is one of my most powerful Pokemon.

3) Mewtwo is probably the strongest pokemon I ever had since he could solo the Elite 4 and Champion in Leafgreen

I wouldn't say every team, but a good 90% of them have had a Gengar or a Raichu. Recently using Electivire a lot now though.

Purely because I like them really ^^

i always used my shiny charizard (which i got on my first try btw) for every battle in my leaf green, then i migrated it to soul silver, where it was used once again, then migrated to white for wifi battles. i have loved charizard ever since i got blue version when it first came out.

For me its Meowth/Persian. They are always with my team. If the game doesn't have Meowth, I won't play that game. How come? not just because its my favorite Pokemon, but because it can learn a few TM's from other types too (like thunderbolt and water pulse).

I mainly use the dragons, which I would think are overused, but dont have a solid team to compliment them yet

Umbreon and Flygon. I never take them out of a team when I get them.

if you looked at all my teams the most used pokemon would probably be celebi but there are several pokemon I tend to overuse do to the fact they are very versatile.

A lot of my competitive teams tend to have Scizor in them because it's such a powerful Pokémon in OU with lots of resistances. Otherwise I do tend to use Vaporeon in abundance also, because of its strength and obvious reasons.

Up until Diamond and Pearl, I've always used Pidgey. Mainly because the first time I ever played Pokemon, back when I was a complete noob, I'd only train one or two Pokemon out of the six I carry with me. The toughest Pokemon I ever had was a Pidgeot, and when I got into the flow of things and restarted my game, I'd pick Pidgey and then when I restarted it again, I picked Pidgey. For some reason, I just really love Pidgeot.

But then, when Diamond and Pearl came out, I found a new Pokemon to spam; Shinx. Not only do I love the design on the little thing, it packs a punch and is worth training in my opinion. Luxio and Luxray are beasts when it comes down to it.

Well for some reason I tend to like to put Gengar in my teams. I guess because he has such a great moveset and his base stats seem pretty good even though I've never actually checked his exact base stats. I would say he is easily one of the best pokes in NU imo.

what...

Anyway, my favorite pokemon i Porygon2(you can probably tell from my avi), mostly because it looks badass and we've been through a lot together. I first used a porygon2 in platinum, my first pokemon game. It got me through the whole game and was probably the most important member of my team. i then used porygon2 in every other pokemon game i played, and whenever a new game comes out, the first question i ask myself is "where do i catch a porygon2" lol

Ugh I can't stand people who think a Pokemon they use are better, it's all about preference. Me I'd rather use Tauros but the other person might not so don't bash them to making you seem your Pokemon is better because that is not always the case.

Onto the topic, for some reason I have been using Noctowl a lot in SoulSilver.

Pidgeot, definitely. I've used one ever since Red, and it's been my trusted in-game partner to this day.
